How many iMechanica users are on Twitter? And how many are on Twitter with professional contacts?
I started to use Twitter about 4 months ago in a completely social, non-professional context. As a personal (expat-focussed) blogger, I started to notice that I was
catching blog posts in my Twitter feed before I would see them in my
feed aggregator (Bloglines). Twitter has emerged as a different sort
of feed aggregator, as well as a provider of information.
The research funding environment we are all experiencing is extremely frustrating, and has the potential for long-term damage to academics and the nation. You may be interested in reading the letter to the Wall Street Journal by two Nobel Prize winners, David Baltimore and Ahmed Zewail.
The deadline of October 1, 2006 for my program of Mechanics & Structures of Materials was inadvertently omitted in our website. However, at the beginning of our CMS home page there are 2 deadlines listed for all programs. In the meantime any unsolicited proposals for my program, please put in GPG 04-23 as the Program Announcement [1st box]. In the 2nd box put in my program name [Mechanics & Structures of Materials].
UNSOLICITED PROPOSALS WILL BE ACCEPTED TWICE A YEAR BETWEEN SEPT. 1 AND OCT. 1 AND BETWEEN JAN 15 AND FEB 15.
